Registering a child for school in Pinellas County

Registering your child

New students in kindergarten, sixth or ninth grades will be assigned to their zoned school. All other new students will be assigned to their zoned schools on a space available basis. A zoned school is one that has been designated for each student based on factors such as proximity, program capacity and feeder patterns from one school level to another.

Step 1: Find your child's zoned school

Use the Zoned School Locator on the district Web site, www.pcsb.org or call your child's school or Student Assignment, (727) 588-6210.

Step 2: Reserve a seat

You will need a ParentCONNECTxp User ID and password. If you already have a User ID and password you can reserve a seat by following the instructions on the Student Reservation System located on the home page of the district Web site. If you do not have a User ID and password, you can go to any nearby school beginning Aug. 3, but call first to make sure staff has reported back to duty or call Student Assignment.

Step 3: Register

Visit the assigned school and deliver the following required documents:

Birth certificate or other proof of identity/age. Students must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 to attend kindergarten. Students must be 6 years old on or before Sept. 1 and have completed kindergarten to attend Grade 1. All new students must present proof of identity/age. For other items that may be accepted as legal evidence of birth, call your child's assigned school.

Proof of residency. Present one of the following: utility bill for power, water, cable, sewer or land-based telephone (not cellular); rental agreement or lease; closing document; Pinellas County tax statement with homestead exemption. The item must be recent and have the name of the parent/guardian and service address on it. If you do not have one of these items in the name of the parent or guardian, you must complete an Affidavit of Residency. This document is available at schools or the district Web site at www.pcsb.org. It must be completed, notarized on both sides and submitted with one of the items listed above in the name of the person with whom you reside and who is listed on the affidavit.

Child's Social Security number. School system personnel are required to ask for this, but the child is not required to have one.

Child's most recent report card. This is for students entering grades 1-12. The report card, if available, should include the school's address and phone number.

Florida Certificate of Immunization. All new students entering school in Florida for the first time must have a completed Florida Certificate of Immunization (DOH 680) appropriate for their grade level.

Physical examination certificate. All new students entering school in Florida for the first time must have a school health examination certificate signed by a licensed examiner (certificate must have been issued within 12 months prior to enrollment/registration).

Individual Education Plan (IEP). If the student participates in exceptional student education, he or she must have a recent IEP.

    JACKSONVILLE

    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
